"...So many things are happening in the adoption world right now. The Baby Veronica case brings many tears. We (adoptees) are fighting for the right to have our Birth Certificates, our history, our medical information...Bastard moments happen many times and it doesn’t hurt any less with time. Rejection by the biological family or birth mother usually results in a feeling of loss, of emotional abortion or an actual death of self... For those not adopted its difficult to understand the depth of this pain."
